an uplifting film about finding courage to triumph over one's disability
While I am not a movie critic, I realize (and appreciate) the themes
which director Robert Iscove and writer Tom Malloy highlight in this
movie. Rarely do theatrical releases emphasize the important theme of
"ability" versus "disability" that this movie does so well. Love N'
Dancing is not just a film about someone who is hearing-impaired
finding love and acceptance, but it highlights a theme important to
life: accepting our own limitations and then finding the courage to
triumph over them. Sometimes you need someone else to help you realize
that you have more courage and determination than you give yourself
credit for. With these qualities, you are able to harness the power
within to challenge, and eventually overcome, the face of adversity.
These themes are central to the Love N' Dancing story, and they
complement a new style of dancing unfamiliar to most Americans.
In this movie, the adversity is a hearing loss. To provide an obstacle
for our main hero and heroine, Malloy introduces a character we love to
hate: one who represents those kinds of people you encounter who are
usually negative in life and actually prevent you from achieving high
self-esteem and self-confidence, which are qualities that are so
important in realizing your dreams.
Most "relationship" movies don't emphasize this "ability" theme as well
as this movie does. For these reasons, I loved Love N' Dancing and the
important life messages it conveys to the viewer. I urge you to see the
movie with this philosophical understanding, and you may never look at
a "disabled" person in the same way again!.
this is for Malloy
As well, Tom Malloy is the best thing in this movie. I am giving an
entrance with references which you must know, yeah, regular chick flick
movie- feel-good movie plus dancing which is my favorite, musical-chick
flick. I appreciate but I can't say it is hilarious; Strictly Ballroom-
Buz made it in 90's with a great success. "Brave new steps put Scott's
career in jeopardy. With a new partner and determination, can he still
succeed?" That is why we love "The Cutting Edge", buddy. Mr Malloy
stole my heart! Amy Smart, you are still my "Butterfly Effect":) I warn
you that I may be one of those critics but still full of emotions!; it
reminded me that honesty. I'm looking forward for your next movies
Malloy, surprise me!.
